The Glendora Police Department participated alongside members of every City of Glendora Department this morning in the #GreatShakeOut2018. The Great Shake Out is an annual training exercise to get Californians prepared for major earthquakes. This provides an opportunity for everyone to learn what to do before, during, and after an earthquake. Approximately 30 members of the City of Glendora staff participated in an exercise simulating an 8.2 magnitude earthquake near Glendora. Our Emergency Operations Center (EOC) was activated, and we worked together to resolve the dynamic exercises that were presented. The purpose of this training event is to ensure that your city employees are prepared and equipped to handle any natural disaster that comes our way. For more information about the Great Shake Out, or how to better prepare yourself and your family for a disaster, visit www.cityofglendora.org, or www.shakeout.org/California/resources.

Today Glendora Police Department participated in the 22nd annual National Walk to School Day. Police Officers, Community Services Officers, Code Enforcement Officers, and Auxiliaries were on hand at each elementary school and middle school in the Glendora Unified School District to show our support by greeting kids and parents walking or biking to school and handing out GPD stickers and pencils. Glendora students did a great job of getting out there and walking!

The Glendora Unified School District will join schools from around the country to celebrate National Walk to School Day tomorrow October 10, 2018 in partnership with the Glendora Police Department to send unified traffic safety messages to our community. Students from all local schools will be walking and biking to school on Wednesday along with parents and teachers. Members of the Glendora Police Department will also join in the walk and will also deploy traffic officers near schools to enforce traffic laws reminding everyone the importance of pedestrian and bicycle safety. Please drive safely and help keep our children safe.

Congratulations to Jailer Jenifer Stearns for being selected as the GPD Employee of the Month for September 2018.

Thanks to all who stopped by our Coffee with a Cop event this morning. Meet our friend Joshua, a future police officer. Joshua was wearing a Tim Crowther Memorial pin and knew all about him. What he didn’t know was today was the anniversary of his passing. Coincidence? We don’t think so. Thanks for stopping by to see us Joshua. We see a bright future ahead. 🌟

Today, October 3rd, marks the 22nd anniversary of Lieutenant Tim Crowther having passed away. He was not just our Lieutenant, but he was a husband, a dad, a friend, a mentor and a coach, just to name a few of his roles. If you were lucky enough to meet him, you haven’t forgotten him. He will always be remembered. We miss you, sir. #restinpeace #LtCrowther #notforgotten

WHAT TO EXPECT: 1️⃣ You’ll hear a loud tone and vibration. 2️⃣ A message box will pop up on the screen and will show a message that starts with “THIS IS A TEST.” 3️⃣ If you are watching TV or listening to the radio, you may also see or hear a test message around the same time. For more information, go to: fema.gov/emergency-alert-test.

October 1st marks the first day of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. For the third year in a row, Glendora Police Officers have the option of wearing pink to honor those that have battled breast cancer. The purpose of this campaign is conversation...if we talk about it, we raise awareness. Through this awareness, we hope that women (and men, too) will make their checkups and health a priority...because early detection saves lives. This year, we are again partnering with the #PinkPatchProject. We are selling our limited supply of 2018 Glendora Police Pink Patches...with the goal of donating at least $10,000 to our charity in November. Patches are $10 each, and can be purchased in the front lobby of the Glendora Police Department, or by sending an email to Sergeant Shawna Celello at scelello@glendorapd.org. In 2016-2017, we have donated $17,000 to the City of Hope, so we know we can reach our goal this year with your help! Patches and t-shirts will also be available at our Coffee with a Cop event later this week (Classic Coffee, 10/03, 8 - 9:30 am) and at Pink Patches & Pasta (Spaghetti Eddie’s, 10/04, 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm). Join us! #PinkPatchProject #BreastCancerAwareness #getchecked #findacure

The Glendora Police Department was proud to support Officer of the Year Mike Skibar at the Law Enforcement Appreciation Night at Dodger Stadium last evening. He was honored on the field prior to the game and had the privilege to meet former legendary Dodger player Steve Garvey. Several members of the department along with his family were there to celebrate his achievement. Everyone enjoyed a fun night of baseball with a Dodger win over the Rockies!!

With the advent of credit card companies adding chip and pin technology for our safety, thieves have gone back to their old ways to get money. They are stealing checks from your mailbox or from the bank of boxes at your community mailbox. The vast majority of the U.S. Postal Service mail deliveries arrive intact, but thieves persist in their efforts to steal it. What are they stealing? Besides those credit card offers, they are looking for the checks you send in the mail to pay for your utilities, mortgage, etc. They take those checks and change the amount and then cash them. Here are some tips from the United States Postal Service that can help protect your mail from thieves: •Use the letter slots inside your Post Office for your mail, or hand it to a letter carrier. •Pick up your mail promptly after delivery. Don’t leave it in your mailbox overnight. If you're expecting checks, credit cards, or other negotiable items, ask a trusted friend or neighbor to pick up your mail. •If you don't receive a check or other valuable mail you're expecting, contact the issuing agency immediately. •If you change your address, immediately notify your Post Office and anyone with whom you do business via the mail. •Don’t send cash in the mail. •Tell your Post Office when you’ll be out of town, so they can hold your mail until you return. •Report all suspected mail theft to a Postal Inspector and the Glendora Police Department. •Consider starting a neighborhood watch program. By exchanging work and vacation schedules with trusted friends and neighbors, you can watch each other's mailboxes (as well as homes). https://postalinspectors.uspis.gov/investigations/MailFraud/fraudschemes/mailtheft/TipThieves.aspx
